About Judah & the Lion
Nashville’s Judah & the Lion released their fourth full-length studio album Revival on June 10th, 2022. Recorded at Echo Mountain in Asheville, NC, the new LP finds the band recapturing the innocence of their youth while embracing the sadness and loss of the last few years. Revival is also the follow-up to 2019’s critically acclaimed Pep Talks, which garnered love from NPR and Rolling Stone and earned Judah & the Lion performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (Outdoor Stage), Late Night with Seth Meyers, Good Morning Football, and the TODAY Show. Pep Talks debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Alternative Albums, Rock Albums, and Independent Albums charts while scoring a Top 10 hit with “Over My Head.” Pep Talks was preceded by Judah & the Lion’s breakthrough LP Folk Hop N’ Roll, which spawned the triumphant 2017 Platinum-selling track “Take It All Back.” The #1 single topped the Alternative Songs Chart for three consecutive weeks, paving the way for a Best New Rock/Alternative Artist win at the 2018 iHeartRadio Awards, numerous debut television appearances, tours with twenty one pilots, Incubus, and Jimmy Eat World, headlining sets at festivals across the globe and much more.
